Go West and Get Away from It All

By Hannah Vermillion

The effects of the coronavirus pandemic have been felt far and wide; every type of business and industry has been affected. One result is a huge shift for the travel industry, as families and individuals are looking for alternatives to cruises and European tours for the rest of 2020 and beyond. The desire to truly escape daily life and highly populated areas has given many Americans the chance to look for a new type of vacation, and we suggest the West! Ranches and mountain retreats are in, and that doesn’t mean just booking a cabin in the woods or pitching a tent and roughing it. A road trip or flight to any of these luxurious ranch-style resorts will open your eyes to the magical landscapes and adventures of the American West—in style!

The Resort at Paws Up

Situated on ten miles of the Blackfoot River, The Resort at Paws Up combines luxury and adventure on a thirty-seven-thousand-acre ranch. Sixty square miles of beautiful Montana wilderness mean guests can enjoy activities like hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, ATV riding, cattle driving, fly-fishing, and clay shooting. Take your camping experience up a notch when you glamp in one of the safari-style tents or Western-chic cabins on property! If you really want to get remote, check out the resort’s Island Lodge at Salmon Lake and enjoy this hub for summertime activities.
